2017, October

Ryan Losi of PIASCIK received the Virginia International Business Council’s 2017 Global Excellence Award during Virginia’s 69th Conference on World Trade.

The Global Excellence Award, formerly called the Rudershausen Award, goes to a "person who has materially contributed to the promotion of world trade in Virginia."

This award was originally titled the "Trader of the Year Award" but was renamed in honor of Mr. F.J. Rudershausen, a long-time member of the Club and a tireless promoter of world trade.

Past recipients have been chosen from many different disciplines involved with international trade, including manufacturers, commodity exporters, bankers, ports, steamship lines, shipping agencies, forwarders/brokers, and state agencies.
